If you want your text indication typeset on top of the upper stave at
the beginning of the score, you should definitely use a
\mark \markup{...} before the first note (or the first rest, as in this
case). By default, such an indication will be centered on top of the key
signature whereas it will look better if it is left aligned in your
example. This is easy to fix, see the following example:

\version "2.6.3"
  \key c \minor
  \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #LEFT
\mark \markup{ \fontsize #2.5 { With passion } ( \raise # 0.5 { \note #"2" #1.0 }=55) }

To move around a full markup, I would in general recommend to use the
padding property if you just want to change the vertical position
and extra-offset if you want to move also horizontally (if it doesn't
help to just set the alignment). See "Common Tweaks" in the manual for
more information. As was already pointed out, you have to make sure that
you set the property on the relevant layout object.
